NY Times Now Links Obama With Martin Luther King, Jr.

I know some news days are slow, and they can only write so many gushing stories about The Messiah, but, sheesh, this is beyond pathetic: Witnesses to Dr. King’s Dream See a New Hope. It is even more pathetic that the Grey Lady pulls this on the anniversary of MLK’s I Have A Dream speech, one of the most inspirational, and substantive, speeches in American history

 She figured this dream for dead so many decades ago.

Dezie Woods-Jones plans to stand Thursday night with her California delegation in a stadium here and listen to Barack Obama, the first black major-party presidential nominee in the nation’s history, give his acceptance speech. Ms. Woods-Jones, now in her 60s, is one of a tiny handful of delegates who on the same day in 1963, Aug. 28, stood with hundreds of thousands at the March on Washington and heard a young minister, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., deliver his soaring “I Have a Dream” speech.

“I was young, naïve enough to think I would see that in 5, 10 years,” she said. “Then you see leaders killed, you see police brutality, residential segregation in cities. About 10 years ago I thought: I won’t see this. This is something for my grandchildren.”

She paused, her eyes now red-rimmed.

“What to say except, ‘Oh, hallelujah!’ ” she said. “We have a lot of work, a lot, but we are so much closer than I expected.”

 Ms. Woods-Jones should consider switching to the Republican Party, as the color of ones skin matters little, just the content of their character. Unlike the Democrat Party, which puts everyone in a box, panders to African-Americans, and is one of the primary reasons why so many minorities are stuck in the welfare nation. But, let’s ask Martin Luther King, Jr

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

There is a man to who not only talked the talk, but walked the walk. He talked about racism, but worked to defeat it. Compared to Obama and his supporters, who call virtually everyone who attacks Obama as racists. Who say the only way Obama can lose is because of racism.

I wonder what MLK would think of 90% of Blacks saying they will vote for the Black guy?
